Audit Reports

Inpatient and Outpatient Reports

Audit Reports summarize the number of Inpatient (IP), Ambulatory Surgery (AS), Emergency Department (ED) and Expanded Outpatient Data (OP) based upon the edits required for each data type. Audit Reports are organized by Discharge Year/Facility Identification Number/ Discharge Month and are updated weekly, provided there are sufficient transactions.

Note: The above SPARCS audit reports are produced to provide data submitters with an understanding whether their submission file matches the records that were accepted by the intake system. The submission of SPARCS data was modernized in March of 2018. Over the last two years, we have worked to stabilize the system. However, there are still outstanding issues that remain and we are working diligently to remediate. The impact of the remediation means that 2018 and 2019 data has not been deemed complete, as we are still asking hospitals to resubmit certain records. We will continue to update our audit reports as we receive the data.

Alert: The audit reports should not be used for public reporting of counts related to understanding hospital inpatient, emergency department, and ambulatory surgery admissions/visits. For public reporting needs for counts by facility, please email SPARCS requests at sparcs.requests@health.ny.gov.
